Lemon Chicken - Chinese Style 檸檬雞

Three steps are required for a successfull dish: marinate, fry, sauté

Here is an easy-to-make Chinese dish. In many Chinese takeaway food shops this dish is not tasty and its texture is far from the one it should have if the dish would have been shortly prepared.

When you make the sauce, you will have to taste it and adjust it if necessary. You also have to find your own balance between acidity and sweetness. If it is too acid, add sugar, too sweet, add lemon, tou can also carefully adjust the salt.

For those who like spicy: before the final cooking, add sliced fresh chilli peppers or chilli paste directly in the sauce, then stir-fry. You will enjoy this dish just after cooking, when the fried chicken pieces are still crispy and the sauce unctuous. Serve with Thai fragrant rice.
Bon appétit.
